Therefore, investing in elegant dining chairs is essential if you plan on making a point to your family and friends in terms of how exceptional your home management qualities are.

Here we will talk about trending interior aspects and what’s new in dining chairs, so read carefully and build your knowledge to make a wise purchase. 


Why do I Need to Invest in Good Dining Chair Set?


The dining room is the heart of every home - a space where we nourish our body with food while sharing long conversations with family, relatives & friends. 

All of this is not possible if you do not have comfortable seating at your dining table thus, why it is indispensable to pick the right dining chairs to create an inviting space that everyone will love. 


There are plenty of options for dining chairs and choosing the best ones seems baffling.

From Scandinavian to Mid-century designs and Leather to Metal dining chairs, each one catches the attention; however, you may need to consider your overall interior, theme, lighting and how spacious your area is where you aim to set your brand new dining chair set.


For this purpose, you are required to get your hands on even the most trivial details of the types of dining chairs available in the market. 

Let’s dig in. 


A Guide to Different Types of Dining Chairs 


Selecting the right dining chair is undoubtedly a win-or-bust situation, as one wrong decision would haunt you in the long run.

Unfortunately, your significant other may never let you forget how you picked up the wrong style and children keep complaining if the dining chairs are uncomfortable... 

So while selecting a chair design for your lovely dining space, you need to consider the comfort, functionality and style. 

Dining chairs mainly come in three basic styles that are:


  • Armless chairs- these are also known as side chairs. You may have seen them placed on the sides of a dining area in a formal setting; however, they are used as proper dining chairs in a casual setting. The material and design vary according to budget and quality. 


  • Arm Chairs- With straight, rounded, carved, or simple backs, these chairs come in several designs with arm support on each side. These chairs make a perfect formal to casual appearance and are relatively more reliable due to arms on the side, especially if you children around. 


  • Parsons chairs- All the upholstered chairs, whether armless or with arm support, come under the category of parsons chairs. These are relatively more comfortable due to extra cushion and upholstery material that varies from linen to leather and simple to patterned design.


Armless or arm support chairs made with wood or metal look better in casual dining areas, in front of bar space, or small spaces, whereas upholstered/parsons dining chairs look better in spacious rooms or fancy to a formal setting. 


If surfing through a vast collection makes it hard for you to make a decision and you worry about making a wrong purchase, you may buy from a reliable site like  Only Dining Chairs, which offer courteous customer support and guidance along with a lifetime warranty for all types of dining chairs.  


These basic styles have further contemporary expansions according to the back design, material quality, functionality and colour schemes.

We have chosen some popular categories and their latest chairs that will help you in the decision making process.
